Happy New Decade!

The Decade of transitioning from Responsible Investment to Investing 2.0

For several decades, ESG and Impact Investing has been heralded as the way to address societal and environmental challenges. Present state of affairs must bring into question the efficacy of this strategy. The following challenges seem insurmountable.

  • Climate Change Destruction
  • Biodiversity loss
  • Water Shortage
  • Food shortage
  • Health Crisis (Diabetes)
  • Income Inequality
  • Pollution
  • Threat of War
  • List goes on.

One can only conclude that ESG and Impact are either too weak and not effective, or they are not large enough, or the entire methodology of environmental, social, governance, and financial risk and reward need to be redesigned.

TBLI will be focussing on this debate. Come join us and Frame the Future Design.

Here is a fantastic speech which questions many of the assumptions philanthropists and impact investors had. This speech led to the publication of his excellent book Winners Take All. Enjoy and Reflect. If you want to get to the hear of the matter, jump to 26:00
